I’ve quite done with my 2 weeks break from the books and am ready to get back to it. I’ve started my CK prep now. Yesterday I opened the cabinet where I stuffed all my books in indiscrimately after the Step 1 exam and chased away all the spiders and cleared the cobwebs. I’ve gotten started with surgery and hope to take the exam by December 31st.
On a less dreary note, I’ve been fortunate enough to make some new friends recently. Moiz was in town for his CK exam a few days back and gave me a call and said we should meet in person. So we met up for dinner. Moiz was with two other friends who had the CK exam the same day, Murtaza and Hussain, both of whom live in Islamabad. The four of us hit it off very well. We had a great time and I really liked the company. I made it clear to them I’d be seeking them out from now on. I’ve had no friends in Islamabad, and the sudden materialization of two people who live here and whose company I enjoy is very good news for me. Uzer, another blogger, also lives in Islamabad. Hussain lives a 5 minute walk from my house, and Murtaza a 5 minutes drive, so that’s really cool as well. We didn’t as Uzer to join us because he’s knee deep in his upcoming CK exam, but I look forward to meeting him as well. From what I’m told, Uzer and I share a lot in common. Moiz called me Uzer V. 2.0.
